About our Office

College of Education Research & Development is a unit within the Dean’s Office of the College of Education & Human Development (CEHD) tasked with strategically leveraging resources to increase CEHD’s research competitiveness. The Research Development team works directly with faculty, Institute administration, strategic partners and funders to facilitate research program funding and award management.

Our Office’s mission is to serve faculty researchers as you conceptualize, develop, and write your proposals to federal agencies and other entities to seek funding for your research projects. We work across all disciplines, departments, and divisions within the College of Education & Human Development with the overarching goal of making the proposal as compelling and competitive as possible — and of making the proposal development process as straightforward and streamlined as possible and ensuring that the management of your award is an easy and stress-free process.

In addition to the management and coordination of the Pre-Award process, CERD Post-Award will assist you with the coordination of award documentation and manage post-award financial activities.

The CERD pre and post-award staff are happy to meet with you in your office to discuss any questions you have about your submission, project account, or outreach activities. Contact us.

Are there instructions on terminating research staff when funding runs out?

Are there instructions on terminating research staff when funding runs out?

Human Resources has clarified that, for any research staff member a PI must terminate for lack of funding/end of grant project, HR will require these 3 documents:

  1. Copy of a 60-day advance termination notice given to the employee, specifying that funding supporting their position is coming to an end
  2. Copy of the employee’s most recent annual appointment letter
  3. Copy of the official award letter/notice from the funding agency that includes end date of the project

The situation is more complicated when the employee is supported off multiple grant projects and/or other resources (e.g., IDC returns).   Please contact Carol Holmes in the Dean’s Office as early as possible if you believe you must terminate research staff who are supported by multiple sources.   Additional documentation will be required.
